In 2023 people around the world will be commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The 80th anniversary is a point of departure for us not only to commemorate those who perished in the Warsaw ghetto, but also to reflect back on the stories of those who survived. Below are some biographies pulled from our collection of stories located on our Virtual Shtetl website.

Read the accounts of people who were civilians in the Warsaw Ghetto and the Uprising. Read their stories to see how each person lived before the War, what activities they participated in while in the ghetto, and how they endured the Uprising.
